Bedroom Refresh with Minted Art Prints

Flashback Summer: Bedroom Refresh with Minted

"Jacob, you know what we should do?  Rearrange the bedroom.  We've lived here for a whole year and we've never changed it around."

"We haven't lived here a year."


"What?  Of course we have.  We moved in in... in..."

"We moved in here last October.  It's been four months."


"ARE YOU SERIOUS?  How is that possible?!  It feels like forever!"

Santa Fe: Fashion Roundup & Shopping Tips

Flashback Summer: Mexican Tourist jacket vintage southwest fashion

I've rounded up some of my vacation outfits to share with you guys, along with some stuff I discovered to aid you in your shopping while there!  I really loved getting to wear southwest-inspired vintage that looks a bit out of place in my home in Missouri.  (Although that doesn't stop me from wearing them, make no mistake!)  I also found a really great deal on this kid-sized Mexican tourist jacket, and I bought it special for the trip!

Flashback Summer: Santa Fe - T-Shirt from Memo Illustration

So you might have seen in my last post the amazing t-shirt I was wearing, and I wanted to share a bit more about it because it was one of exactly two garments I had been saving specifically for my Santa Fe trip.  (The other one is coming up soon!)

Santa Fe: Bandelier National Monument

Flashback Summer: Santa Fe Travel - Bandelier National Monument

I am excited to share this post on the Frijoles Canyon Cliff Dwellings in Bandelier National Monument, as it was one of my favorite spots we visited.  Talk about idyllic southwest scenery and history!  A blending of Native, thousand-year old cliff dwellings and more recent vintage history of quaint lodges and an adventurous female.

Santa Fe Travel Series

Flashback Summer: Santa Fe Travel Series - tips

What an amazing week I've had!  I've been keeping it on the DL, but last week my family and I went to Santa Fe for spring break!  It's the first time my parents, sister, my husband, and I have all been on the same continent for an official family vacation, so it was especially lovely.

The cool thing about the United States is that it's a big country, and there's a HUGE amount of things to see and do.  We have a diverse history, an impressive range of natural settings... so it was a bit difficult to narrow it down.  Even though I, of course, was raised largely in America, most Americans haven't seen all there is to see here.  There's just so much!


My sister suggested we go to Santa Fe, New Mexico.  None of us but her had ever really been to the southwest of the U.S. before, so we were up for trying something new!  It was a FANTASTIC vacation, and I'll be highlighting some of the things we did, my desert-travel fashion, best places to visit, and tips in a series here on the blog.  Today I'm starting with some of my top tips and advice if you ever venture down this way.

Interview with a Blog Husband

"Is your husband into vintage, too?"


"What does your husband think of your clothing?"


"Does he like old stuff?"


I get a lot of questions about my husband's style and interests, so I thought I'd take a chance to interview him!  Jacob takes most of the photos you see here on the blog when I'm not using a tripod, and I appreciate his help!  So here's some insight from the man behind the camera:
